Close to Cashew Tree, spend the day dipping your feet into white sand and enjoying the salty breeze of Bingin Beach. Situated off the beaten paths, the shore can be reached by walking down several steep flights of steps. Nevertheless, the unique, large rock formations and beautiful ocean view make the trip down worthwhile.

Lunch out at Guapa

A 20-minute walk away from Bingin Beach, Guapa Mexican Restaurant is a convenient place to stop by to get a quick bite. Their Baja fish and tuna tataki tacos, priced at IDR90,000 (SGD9) each, are good options to start with.

Surf at Padang Padang Beach

Surfing is a common thing to do while in Uluwatu, for it provides the best surfs even for kamikaze surfers. Also known as the Balinese Pipeline, Padang Padang beach breaks off into the left reef break and the picturesque right break. Famed for its wave height and speed that expert surfers could only dream of, show off your advanced surfing skills and have the best surf when there is a mid to high tide.

Beginners, however, can opt for the gentler right beach break to hone their technique. Surfing aside, Padang Padang is a sunbathers’ paradise.

Also known as the Suluban cave beach, this hidden gem is a five-minute motor ride or a 20-minute walk from Thomas beach. Enclosed by cliffs, walking through the massive Suluban cave to get to the quaint shore is mandatory. Likened to a Pirates of a Caribbean set, the cave oozes mystery and raw beauty. Be sure to visit the beach during the low tide so you can explore the cave.

Stop by the plethora of cafés to stock up on snacks, or get corn on a cob, by the stands at the carpark before heading down to the beach. If you are riding down, you can park for IDR5,000 (SGD0.50).
